William Nelson's New Jersey Marriage Records, 1665-1800

You also receive Nelson's invaluable Patents and Deeds and Other

Early Records of New Jersey, 1664-1703, both published originally as

part of the official Archives of the State of New Jersey.

 

Another official collection included on this CD--absolutely seminal in

genealogical research--is the New Jersey Index of Wills, Inventories, etc., in

the Office of the Secretary of State, which features 185,000 entries arranged

under the twenty-one present-day counties of New Jersey
